I think the 1:1 Clonetrooper bust will look cool, because being computer generated there will be little issues (hopefully) regarding movie accuracy. A 1:1 Stormtrooper bust is a different story though...

Clone Trooper is nice, but I'll wait to see if eFX does a Phase 2 Clone bucket - same size piece, but at least it'll be functional.

The Bith is a pass. Might have been better in LSB size.

I like them both. I already have the MR 501st helmet, and I still may cave on that bust. Dammit.

Look good, but a pass for both. The Clone-I already have the MR bucket,not to mention GG bust, SS figures and the koto. Maybe if it had been a Kashyyk Trooper,but I've hit my limit for 501st Clones.
Band member-looks good, but not important enough a character/alien to me to warrant a place in my collection.

I can forsee this getting confusing, so I changed the title of this thread to just the 501st Clone Trooper and created a new one for the Bith Cantina Band Member here (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=4440009&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=93&fpart=&vc=#Post4440009).

I agree..I'd definitely like more 501st in my collection but affording these nice items is a different story

looks great but will be a pass for me - the 2 MR versions are enough. I would have prefered Sideshow offer us the commanders in this scale.

The 501st bust looks fantastic. If I had the cash and space I would contemplate buying it. However as good as it is I'm saving my money for the Emperor PF and EFX ANH Darth Vader helmet. Besides, I know if I did get it I know it would then be easier to find excuses to buy other non-Sith 1:1 busts. Must keep focus.

Right with you buddy. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Both busts look awesome and I probably could afford the Clone bust(Flex-Pay of course) but coming up with the room to display it properly is another story all together. As nice as it looks I'm not that into the Bith to get one.

Master Replicas already did one. I doubt eFX will.

The problem with MR's Phase 2 helmets is that they had to be scaled up in order to be wearable. The SS bust looks proportionate. If they get the paint job right, this would be the best representation.

MR already made a phase 2 helmet so EFX wouldn't make another unless it's a different rank.

Right, because they were upscaled to actually fit a human head. The ones in the film were all digital and no proportioned to fit a human head. It only needed to look close enough!

Indeed. These are the differences between real props like Stormie helmet and CGI Clone helmets.

I only have MR scaled so I guess I should check out the regular size to see if its more cost effective that a 1:1 bust

I get it. Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't know that the helmets we were seeing on screen were "too small."

I own the Yoda, Emperor, and Vader 1:1 busts and thought I was all done after I got Vader. I might have to get this one though. These guys are my favorite out of all of the troopers in the saga. I have the clean version of the Master Replicas helmet and I think the bust would be a great companion piece.

Signing up on flex pay once the clone goes online, I have a grievous 1:1 and this would be #2. This would look so awesome next to my battle worn MR bucket and 501st clone and yoda PF!

Indeed, it is just a easy repaint and Gree would also be a bit more than just making a regular white or colored clone.

This kinda stinks. I own the MR Spec Ops and the Dirty 501st buckets... now this. I dont want all 3... heck I dont want the 1st Spec Ops Bucket anymore.. so my drama is what to do... sell the other 2 buckets and get this or just keep what I have. Cant wear the SS bucket but how often am I really gonna put these on and walk around? What do you guys recommend?

You should probably look at the full reveal of the Sideshow piece when they show it in the production blog on Tuesday and then decide which one you want the most.

Everyone sees these things differently...
To me, these are apple and oranges....two different animals.
The MR helmets are just that....Helmets!
If you are a prop guy, that is your thing...

SSC makes busts....inherently different from a prop/costume helmet. These are busts....this one in particular has shoulders and it looks like the head turns at the neck. It is a different presentation.
If you don't care which, I would go with this new bust. It presents better in a room....I use that word 'better' carefully, since this is all relative to the collector who showcases these things. But, I mean it in the sense that is looks like a lifesize representation of what a 'real' 501st trooper might look like, complete with weathered battle scars to his armor.

In my opinion, you can't lose either way.....that is except for $$$!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Shadow
01-15-2011, 08:07 PM
Just like with the Boba Bust, I already have the weathered 501st helmet from MR, so I don't need this one as well. If I didn't already have the MR helmet though I would be getting it. These busts do display very well; my Emperor Palpatine has been noted for creeping out more people with his room presence than anything else I own. The cable guy's reaction was the best! LOL!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I am so torn on these last three busts....

I have the 1:1 3PO, so that was a fairly easy pass.
I have the MR Fett Helmet, but this one stings as a am a huge Fett fan and the Bust is different enough to warrant another representation at that size....although, I have been holding out hope for a 1:1 full scale Fett.
As for this 501st Clone? See my feelings on Fett. Same!

Ugh! What to do....Especially since they got the BLUE color right! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

You're right. This may end up shipping around the same time as the Emperor/Throne PF or the Droids PF set and both of those might just be as expensive as this.

In all truthfulness I still prefer my MR 501st Weathered bucket as superior to this one.

Make no mistake, if I didn't have my MR helmet I'd be all over the Sideshow offering. I just think the weathered MR helmet looks better by comparison.

SirTristram
02-05-2011, 10:24 AM
I love the MR pieces, but I simply do not like that light blue color they chose. That is NOT what I saw on screen, regardless of what images they received from LFL or however they determined that color. It looks more like a knock-off in terms of color. I don't like that 'almost' right feel. The helmet is great, but the color....that is what I look at every time I pass by it.
I may have to spring on this 501st piece. I have held off on the Fett, 3P0 (seems redundant since I have the 1:1) and now this....but this one intrigues me. I just don't want to buy it and then have them come out with a 1:1 full size trooper. I would rather wait for that.
